I recently read that there is a measure up to the Governor of Texas to end property taxes. Now that sounds like a win-win situation.
If Bonners Ferry were to consider doing this, just imagine the positive impact it would have on our community. More jobs, local businesses would boom, the school district might be able to get money for their needs, people could have a better way of life.
I don’t expect Gov. Little to ever consider doing this, but what would be the reason Bonners Ferry couldn’t do it. We pay state taxes to keep them happy.
Ask yourself, why are there property taxes anyway? From what I understand, income taxes were never ratified. Maybe a citizens’ levy might be in order?
Anyway, Id like to your thoughts…….
